Mila Kunis underwent a weight loss of 20 pounds to play the role of a ballerina in Black Swan and she got just as slim for Four Good Days. The only difference is that the Luckiest Girl Alive star did it unhealthily with a 1200-calorie ballerina diet for the former whereas she took a healthier approach and followed a proper plan and diet and exercise for the film about drug addiction. Fans think Mila Kunis has had weight loss again in 2022 but she has not acknowledged it yet.
Mila Kunis is an American actress who is widely known for her portrayal of Jackie Burkhart on the Fox television series That '70s Show. She later went on to marry her That '70s Show co-star Ashton Kutcher. She has also notably voiced Meg Griffin on the Fox animated series Family Guy. As she transitioned to films as an adult, she got her breakout role in 2008 playing Rachel in the romantic comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
Mila Kunis gained wide recognition and appreciation and further critical acclaim for her performance in the 2010 psychological thriller Black Swan. She also received the Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best Young Actor or Actress and got nominated for the SAG Award and the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress.
Some of her other major films include the action films Max Payne and The Book of Eli, the romantic comedy Friends with Benefits, the fantasy film Oz the Great and Powerful and Wicked Witch of the West, and the comedies Ted, Bad Moms and its sequel, A Bad Moms Christmas.
Her latest release is Luckiest Girl Alive which premiered on Netflix on September 30. The promotional events for the film were followed by speculations of her weight loss as the fans thought that she appeared very lean and thin in those events. She has not acknowledged those speculations yet so we can't say for sure if she got slimmer. But she has lost weight in the past for movies. Let's learn about Mila Kunis' weight loss for Black Swan and Four Good Days!
Previously, we touched on the weight loss efforts of Kathy Najimy and Vince Wilfork.
Mila Kunis' Weight Loss: The Luckiest Girl Alive Cast Followed a 1200 Calorie Ballerina Diet to Lose Weight for Black Swan; The Actress Followed a Healthy Plan and Had Proper Diets and Exercise for Four Good Days!
Mila Kunis dropped to 95 pounds after a weight loss of 20 pounds for Black Swan and she got just as slim for another film about drug addiction Four Good Days.
After Mila Kunis' latest release Luckiest Girl Alive and promotional activities for that which means more public appearances, people have begun to wonder if she had a weight loss after seeing her slim frame. But it does not seem likely. She was always slender and lithe. Plus, her diets and exercise routine she follows to stay fit helps. She does not look like she could get any skinnier.
But Mila Kunis can and she has in the past for several movies, most notably for Black Swan in 2010. She really took her dedication to craft to another level when she dropped down to a weight of just 95 pounds when training for the film. She got 'crazy thin' after a weight loss of 20 pounds. 20 pounds is too much for an already lean person and on top of that, she achieved that in not a healthy way.
The already waifish Bad Moms star, completely devoted to playing the role of a ballerina to perfection in Black Swan, took some major health risks to have that weight loss to achieve the ideal ballerina body which she revealed in an interview with Howard Stern on his SiriusXM show. She said that she didn't recommend anybody ever do what she did to lose weight which was really a messed-up diet plan if you can even call it that.
Mila Kunis opened up about the diet plan she stuck to, to lose weight, as per which she went on a 1200-calorie-a-day restrictive diet and smoked way too many cigarettes. For someone who never watched what she ate before Black Swan, she really went too far when she got a food delivery service and turned into a smoker and ate a limited amount of calories, 1200 calories per day to be specific. Aware of how unhealthy it was, she took care to note that she didn't advocate any of it for weight loss.
Mila Kunis probably won't ever take this approach for weight loss ever and not just because it was unhealthy but also because she didn't like the way her body looked after she dropped 2o pounds to play Natalie Portman's ballerina frenemy in Black Swan. She didn't appreciate how she was just 'muscles, like a little brick house, but skin and bones' at 95 pounds. She was repulsed by what she saw when she looked in the mirror. She explained,
I would literally look at myself in the mirror and I was like, “Oh my God!” I had no shape, no boobs, no ass…All you saw was bone. I was like, “This looks gross.”
And add to it that Mila Kunis had that weight loss in just a few months which generally results in fast weight gain and in all the wrong places. When she gained all the weight back, it ended up in completely different places. She said that all the weight that left her chest went to her side hip and her stomach. She certainly is never losing her weight that way again.
I was healthy in regards to the way I did it but as far as a lifestyle choice, I was like, ‘Oh this is rough.’ But it only had to be for a minute. You have to unfortunately look a certain way to look like a heroin addict so I think I did it over four months. I exercised and dieted. I felt very strong… but I was thin.
